  1. Are the wide Bodies 1/8 Scale? I have 4 1/10 Rallycars, Renault Turbo, Lacia 037, Lancia Delta and a Toyota Celica, so a 1/8 would not fit perfectly in my Lineup.... A Mantaray is a good Choice, but an other Bodyshell would be more aprechiated by me. I´m in Search of a fresh F150 Baja, a Hilux Monster Racer and a King Cab Body as a Repro Lexan Shell..... They would fit. E.g. the DT-02: You can put a Rough Rider Bodyshell on it and it looks good. Sadly that is not possible with an DF01, because of the Damperpossitions etc. a "vintage" repro Body would be very nice, or maybe a baja Body.
  2. I really do not like the Manta Ray But yes, it would be the obvious choice. Maybe i will get a Mata Body and paint it like the "Turbo" known from Toystory.
  3. Hello, i have a couple of DF01 Chassis. 1 Top Force 2 Blazing Stars (either of them badly painted and/or in the wrong Color and one of them are missing the original shocks and wheels) 1 Dirt Thrasher (sadly painted blue instead of white.....) The Top Force will be restored with a Repro Body and painted boxart. The Dirt Thrasher maybe will get the right paint if i find a new Body. The Blazing Star stays as it is, maybe i try to repaint it.... But there is 1 DF01 chassis i only have a poorly painted Blazing Star Body witout a wing, baad aluminum oilshocks with neonyellow springs. What should i do with it? what Body would fit the chassis? I could put a Puckupbody on it, but then i would need new Arms to narrow down the Trackwidth... ....but then it would fit to my Ford Baja Car (also with a trashed Body.....)
  4. So on a lot of Sites like Banggood or Ebay you find Aluminum Tape for reinforcing Lexanbodies. Why do "everybody" use Aluminum Tape?? I`ve ordered this Tape: https://www.amazon.de/Aluminium-Klebeband-netzverstärkt-Lüftungs-Klimaanlagen/dp/B06Y14SLN7/ref=trb_chk_auth?__mk_de_DE=ÅMÅŽÕÑ&dchild=1&keywords=aluminium+klebeband&qid=1618326184&sr=8-17&openid.assoc_handle=amazon_checkout_de&openid.claimed_id=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.amazon.de%2Fap%2Fid%2Famzn1.account.AFJBRN36CHYVJG2JC5BRIO3JYWYA&openid.identity=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.amazon.de%2Fap%2Fid%2Famzn1.account.AFJBRN36CHYVJG2JC5BRIO3JYWYA&openid.mode=id_res&openid.ns=http%3A%2F%2Fspecs.openid.net%2Fauth%2F2.0&openid.op_endpoint=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.amazon.de%2Fap%2Fsignin&openid.response_nonce=2021-04-13T15%3A05%3A04Z2988856154929035734&openid.return_to=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.amazon.de%2FAluminium-Klebeband-netzverst%C3%A4rkt-L%C3%BCftungs-Klimaanlagen%2Fdp%2FB06Y14SLN7%2Fref%3Dtrb_chk_auth%3F__mk_de_DE%3D%C3%85M%C3%85%C5%BD%C3%95%C3%91%26dchild%3D1%26keywords%3Daluminium%2Bklebeband%26qid%3D1618326184%26sr%3D8-17%26trb_auth%3D1%26trb_open%3D1%26trb_bid%3Dbuy-now-button&openid.signed=assoc_handle%2Cclaimed_id%2Cidentity%2Cmode%2Cns%2Cop_endpoint%2Cresponse_nonce%2Creturn_to%2CsiteState%2Cns.pape%2Cpape.auth_policies%2Cpape.auth_time%2Csigned&openid.ns.pape=http%3A%2F%2Fspecs.openid.net%2Fextensions%2Fpape%2F1.0&openid.pape.auth_policies=http%3A%2F%2Fschemas.openid.net%2Fpape%2Fpolicies%2F2007%2F06%2Fnone&openid.pape.auth_time=2021-04-13T15%3A05%3A04Z&openid.sig=weCUfVxeYpcC7A%2Ft6TUSgJDKeeX9X%2FABrQTII85lamU%3D&serial=&siteState=|hasWorkingJavascript.1 But what is the advantage over normal goilla- crocodile-, gaffa, duckt- or whatevertape? This is what other People use:
  5. Try it. It would be awesome to read a tested opinion about these Motors
  6. Track width is not a bad thing at all. It`s a good thing. Modern Buggies are long, wide, lightweighted, and durable. It is only a cosmetical Thing, the Body has wheelarches and the original Chassis from the 80s fits the Body perfectly. So my eyes are used to that old look. It would be awesome if there was a ready to install Set to narrow the Holiday Buggy down. The first few times i saw a narrowed down 2010 HB, i fell in love with that look, but i was to lazy to get the fitting pats yet.....
  7. Hello, i will be getting a Lancia 037 TA02 this week. I do not know if it ready to use LEDs, so i searched the Interweb and Youtube. I`ve found that Video: That guy painted the Chassis, but i don`t know if that is a good Idea, because i think i will look very bad after just one run..... Do you paint your chassis?? How does it hold up?? Did anyone has LEDs fitted to a Lancia 037?
  8. The Holidaybuggy 2010 ist a good basher with a 540 Motor and Oilshocks. It obly has one downside: the trackwith is to wide..... I have a Holidaybuggy and a Scorchershell on a DT02, but i do not use them a lot. They perform good and all, but the Scorchershell is to delicate to ruin and the Wolidaybuggy is not narrow enough... Also my Holiday Buggy is a teeny weeny bit broken and you can't glue that Body..... The DT02 is a good Basherbuggy. https://www.tamiyaclub.com/showroom_model.asp?cid=125090&id=41592 https://www.tamiyaclub.com/showroom_model.asp?cid=124159&id=41592
  9. I think both are great fun on the right terrain. 2WD Buggies are a lot of Fun 4wd Buggies are a bit boring for my taste, they easily get over everyting in my Driving area, they drive like the ground is a "traintrack" and the car rolls savely on the Rails of the Track. On verry loose Ground a 4 WD Car is great fun. I love dusty/sandy roads and bash around with a 4wd rally car. I love 4WD Monstertrucks for the "realistic" feel, but a Monster Beetle is great fun. Overall, i think 2WDs are overall i bit more fun on slower speeds because they are nos as predictible.
  10. I ordered 3 23t goolrc Motors. Maybe i can install a Super Stock in my Blazing Star and the goolrc in the Dirt Thrasher.
  11. The Offroad performene will be better if you use Oilshocks. But you will need to mount the Servos on the axle, because the standard middle mounted Servolinks and their Servosavers limit the Suspensiontravel. I purchased these leaky golden dual spring shocks from China for around 30 Dollars for 8 shocks. I must warn you: they are cheap china shocks and not nearly as good as tamiya plastic CVAs. But they look good and are still a huge step up performancewise. The Traxxas BigBores are way better, but then you only can mount 1 shock per wheel and they do not look as good. My dreamsuspension would look like this, only with anti sway bars Sadly my suspension is not as soft as this...
  12. Thanks for all your replys. It is interresting to read your different suggestions. Is the GoolRC 23t Motor similar to the Sporttuned or is the 21t "more similar" to it. I would like to run the Stock ESC.
  13. @fuijo A Lancia 037 is on the Way to my Home. Are the Lightbuckets "LED ready" i have a LED Unit with Brakelights and Blinker etc. that i would like to install. I love it when a Body ist "ready to use" like the Killerbody Bodys.
  14. There are extensions, but i have 2 servos installed and the cable reaches with ease. Build your Clod with Ballbearings and try it, maybe no special Hopups are needed for your taste. A bonestock Clod is aprechiated by a lot of People. For my Taste a stock Clod isn`t the type of RC i like to drive. My Clod has 2 Servos, a Servomount designed by @MadInventor in Front and the rear, Ball Bearings, Oilshocks (very soft Setting), a homemade Anti Swaybar and a Chassisplate for a wider Wheelbase because i have 120mm shocks (most People run 100 mm shocks, but i like more suspensiontravel) that are too long, so i had to widen the Wheelbase. Here is my Clodject: I´m mostly very happy with the outcome, the only thing is that i just want it to be a little bit faster, but i`m no lipo kind of guy. @all, sorry about my bad english, the last time i`ve spoken a single word of english was 15 years ago
